About

 Invictus. Latin for Unconquerable, Undefeated.

We chose our name with intent because there is power in visual arts, particularly in content creation. Power to bring the imagination to life. Power to tell stories. And we bring that power to you. We can bring to life not only who you are, but who you want to be, just like we’ve done for Fortune 500 companies.

Meet the team

 We chose our team not because they’re warm bodies with technical ability. We chose them because they’re unicorns, that perfect connection between imagination and skill. Our entire team works collaboratively from storyboarding to the final cuts to give our clients visual products that propel them forward today into the tomorrow they’re dreaming about.
